    Risk Management

    Commodity risk management is the foundation upon which a comprehensive and fully-optimized energy management is built.

A global approach to commodity risk management

A global enterprise needs an energy risk management strategy suitable for every single energy market. Furthermore, it should align with a plan for both short and long-term strategic sourcing initiatives. A one-size-fits-all commodity risk management strategy is no longer enough. Businesses must now balance risk avoidance and risk acceptance all in order to find risk advantage.

We protect your position in global energy markets

There are numerous strategies and instruments available for commodity risk management. Schneider Electric uses strategic and dynamic methodologies as the foundation for your strategy and then perfects it based on your unique risk tolerance.

Your customized commodity risk management strategy

A Risk-Optimization Strategy balances conflicting objectives so you can protect against rising markets and benefit from falling markets. We’ll optimize your capital and value at risk along the way to ensure you stay within your commodity budget limits and optimize your energy pricing. Through the Risk-Optimization approach, you operate in the market through fixed and unfixed purchasing tactics.

With a Risk-Anticipation Strategy, you typically operate in the market through buy and hold purchasing tactics. You might be in a situation where once you take a position in the market you have to hold it. You need to anticipate the market threats and opportunities in the areas where you have facilities. Our team is responsible for anticipating these threats and opportunities before they arise against predefined strategic goals.
